to lecture senator dianne feinstein about guns. she has a bill that would restore the assault weapons ban which expired. and as our colleague rachel maddow pointed out last night, this ban might have prevented the newtown shooter from getting a buschmaster assault rifle. why is it that republicans say they share your concern about gun violence, but whenever there's an opportunity to do something, they simply turn and walk in the opposite direction? >> yes. the irony is that this is an extraordinary example of political cowardace by people like ted cruz and those who are so easily swintimidated by the nra. senator feinstein has tremendous courage, as well as being one of the sharpest intellects in the united states senate. the vast majority of her colleagues know that. cruz is a newbie. perhaps he doesn't realize the kind, the level of respect that has been earned from senator feinstein's colleagues. but to do that, what it did was really to marginalize senator cruz. now, clearly he's trying to stake out a political position to the right of the republican party and it keeps getting more an

of the senate judiciary committee, dianne feinstein, whose plan would ban a certain number of assault weapons and magazine clips and senator ted cruz, he spoke to her about the constitution. here's part of the exchange yesterday from the senate judiciary committee. [video clip] >> which reconsider its constitutional for congress to specify that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that congress has been outside the protection of the bill of rights, likewise with she-pac before amendment protection against search and seizure could properly applied only to the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that congress has been outside the protection of the bill of rights? >> you have a question, senator? >> let me make a couple of points in response. i am not a sixth grader. senator, i have been on this committee and 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in and some people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. i have seen the bullets that imposed. in sandy hook, youngsters were dismemb
for it and every republican against it. a vote on a separate plan by california democrat dine feinstein to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines was delayed. the federal aviation administration today approved boeing's plan to redesign the troubled batteries on its 787 "dreamliner." in several instances, the lithium ion batteries have overheated or caught fire. as a result, the entire fleet of "dreamliners" was grounded earlier this year. the f.a.a. says extensive testing of the redesigned batteries will be needed before the planes can return to service. the top u.s. intelligence official warned today that north korea's tough talk and provocative actions pose a serious challenge. national intelligence director james clapper appeared at a senate hearing on global threats. clapper said north korea's young leader, kim jong un, is proving unpredictable. his regime recently staged a long-range missile launch and nuclear test, and has threatened a nuclear strike against the u.s. . >> the rhetoric propaganda-laced is also an indicator of their attitude and perhaps their intent. fo
. >> sean: let me go to the rhetoric of the left, it's getting out of control. according to dianne feinstein, it's legal, i didn't know this, to go hunting for humans, this is what she said. >> the time has come, america, to step up and ban these weapons. the other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold over ten rounds. we have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds, and yet, it's legal to hunt humans with 15 round, 30 round, even 150-round magazines. >> sean: all right, two points here, i didn't know it was legal to hunt humans, that may be in some part of the country that i don't know about. that's number one, but she did say there ban weapons, which is what i think the goal is. and what if there's invasion, three or four people come in your house, seven bullets in new york, ten bullets nationally may not be enough. >> the fact is when you're in a gun fight with bad people, you never say i wish i had less rounds. and a 30-round magazine is actually standard. mag poll is going

're in the situation room. u.s. senator dianne feinstein made news on tuesday when she promised to keep fighting for a ban on semiautomatic weapons like the one used to massacre these children and teachers in newtown, connecticut even though democratic leaders say they can't get enough votes to pass it. >> this is very important to me. and i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. it's aimed to protect children, to protect schools, animald mal. it is aimed to dry up the supply of these over time. and it came out on a 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee. not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust as i would see it. >> front page of today's "new york daily news" calls it a shame. the assault weapons ban is effectively dead at least for now. cnn's mary snow is in newtown, connecticut right now. she is asking people there what they think about all of this. what do they think, mary? >> reporter: emotional reaction, wolf. there are people here who have taken on an active
